Letter: Build a bypass, Peachland through to Vernon

Those who wish to come into Kelowna and other towns will come in and those who do not want to come into the towns will by pass.

To the editor:

Re: WK wants Highway 97 Removed from the City, March 11 Kelowna Capital News.

I have been writing and emailing about a bypass to bring us into the 20th century for years. It is time for the people to get on their high horses and let the government and the cities know that we no longer can be bamboozled into kowtowing to the likes of West Kelowna city council and merchants who seem to think that the traffic means more business.

Hog wash.

Put a bypass in for Peachland, West Kelowna, Kelowna and Vernon. Those who wish to come into Kelowna and other towns will come in and those who do not want to come into the towns will by pass. I am sure you will receive a huge thank you from all the truckers especially.

Coming into all these towns is just plain asinine. The roads and bridges will be just fine with all the extra traffic out on the freeway where they belong.

Maggie Flood, Kelowna
